The Salvation Army needs YOU at Bacon Fest!
Come volunteer with us at Bacon Fest Saturday, September 13, 2014 at the Arkansas State Fairgrounds. As a State Fair partner, The Salvation Army has been invited to participate at this inaugural Bacon Fest event. Our presence at this event is an opportunity to promote our service opportunities like the State Fair Food Drive (which will be held October 14 this year).
Bacon Fest volunteers can either help with the Bacon Fest 5K that morning by staffing the water and bacon stations or volunteer during the festival in one-hour shifts. (Please wear your Salvation Army t-shirts. If you don't have one, we'll have some on hand that morning.) All volunteers can enjoy FREE general admission into the festival. 5K volunteers will meet at 8:30 AM that morning on the steps of Barton Coliseum for orientation. (Please note that registration for the 5K starts at 8:00 AM, and vendor set up begins at 7:00 AM, so traffic/parking may take a bit longer than usual.)

Festivities kick off at 9:30 AM with the 5K Fun Run/Walk, and then the festival opens to the public at 11:00 AM. There will be live music, local merchant booths, a kids' zone with inflatables, cooking contest for professional chefs and amateurs, a beer garden, and a bacon eating contest. Tickets are $8 in advance or $10 day of event. Kids 8 and under are free (up to 2) with paid adult admission. VIP Taster Judge tickets $30, limited amount. Again... Volunteers can get general admission for free... If you would like additional tickets or VIP Taster tickets, please visit the Bacon Fest website.
Thank you so much for your support, and we look forward to seeing you there!
